I knew an older lady did can juice in 1/2 gallons. Until we got enough wild plums to make a big batch of jelly. We use for dry canning.Statistics: Posted by arkieready — Sat Feb 10, 2018 2:12 pm

I thought I had a pretty slick FAK/trauma kit…..Until DS got hit on his motorcycle. After we convinced him to go to hospital, he was sedated, treated and released. For me to care for the road rash on his back. From the top of his shoulder to his …
